Overview

Picture yourself relaxing on the deck of this beautiful 65- foot schooner as she sails out of Gloucester harbor on a light southwesterly breeze. Join us for a two-hour sail and get a taste for what it was like to sail on a fishing schooner a hundred years ago. Help the crew raise the sails, or just sit back and take in the sights and sounds of Gloucester's coastline. Some of our weekend public sails feature music. We offer group rates. And we specialize in private charters for weddings, corporate entertainment, teambuilding, birthdays and more. The Lannon is a great place for a party!

My husband and I went on the sunset/music cruise. The experience was as relaxing and enjoyable as ever. The wind did not cooperate so we did not travel particularly far, but between the music, the sunset, the crew and the cocktails, we had a great...More

Crew was very professional and attentive to their guests; and knowledgeable about the area. We were lucky to have clear skies and sunshine - not too much wind, but the crew gave us a great sail anyway! The rum punch is delicious :-)

Any ship with a resident bagpiper is fine with me. Great crew, good music.Could have used more wind, but that's not under crew control.

Gorgeous, pristine schooner built in the Essex ship yard in the early 1900s - maintained and operated by offspring of the builder! Snacks and drinks on board, very cordial crew, extremely safety conscious, and very conversational. Passengers helped hoist the sails, which was great fun....More

My boyfriend and I had such a wonderful time last Sunday on The Lannon for the Celtic Music Cruise; we simply could not have asked for a better night. The crew were all SO kind, genuine, and funny--it felt like we had known them forever!...More

Even though it was overcast we had a nice sailing. The crew let you help with lifting the sails.The crew are all very friendly they serve cocktails if you're interested and have light snacks on board. This was our second trip would highly recommend

Nothing better than sailing out of Gloucester on a custom built Schooner Great boat for a sail and touring the inner harbor, a great crew and a great experience for anyone who has never taken advantage of a cruise by sail

Thanks for joining us. We always try to run our engine as little as possible so folks can enjoy the ride. The "highliner fishermen" always kept their vessels in immaculate condition so that is what we strive for also.
